ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) – As COVID-19 restrictions are kept in place, the travel industry is being hit hard. Aerospace companies in Rockford say they have felt the ripple effects. It may take some time for their industry to recover.
Kevin Michaels is the managing director of AeroDynamic Advisory. He projects that commercial aviation won’t return to levels they used to see before COVID-19 until late 2023. He says it could happen sooner but national data shows that some Americans will be reluctant to start flying again after the pandemic.
